A Carlisle man has been sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for stealing from his grandmother.

23-year-old Michael Tinning, of no fixed address, was sentenced today, Friday 4 April.

Police say the victim had a general mistrust of banks and kept a large amount of money under her mattress, rather than putting it in a bank account.

Detective Constable Chris Hind of Cumbria Police said: "Tinning showed no remorse during his police interview and continued to refuse to admit what he had done when faced with damming evidence of his fingerprints having been found on an envelope left behind.

“The family have placed total trust in the police throughout this investigation. The actions of Tinning have deeply affected a good family.”
